  • Just installed the anniversary update and notice that if I lock the PC the screen image is black. The text and date show, but no image. Is this just me or a anniversary bug?

  • The default lock screen images are stored in C:\Windows\Web, can you find them in this folder?

    You may also copy an image and paste to this folder and check if it can make any difference.

    In the web folders I see 3 other folders: 4k, screen, web. in each one I see a different set of picture. When I lock the screen I only see the text on a black screen. If I tap a screen an image open and it's waiting for my password to log into windows
